Category: Health & Hospitals

Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

October 25, 2018 - Optim Medical Center-Tattnall is the only hospital in the region† to be named one of America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Joint Replacement according to a national study by Healthgrades, the leading online resource for comprehensive information about physicians and hospitals. Every year, Healthgrades evaluates hospital performance at almost 4,500 hospitals nationwide for 32 of the most common inpatient procedures and conditions using all-payer data.*

The achievement is part of findings released today in the Healthgrades 2019 Report to the Nation. The new report demonstrates how clinical performance differs dramatically between hospitals nationally, regionally and at the local level, and the impact that this variation has on health outcomes. For example, from 2015-2017, patients treated at hospitals receiving the America's 100 Best Hospitals for Joint Replacement Award have, on average a 63.0% lower risk of experiencing a complication while in the hospital than if they were treated in hospitals that did not receive the award.*  Additionally, from 2015-2017, patients treated at hospitals which did not receive the America's 100 Best Hospitals for Joint Replacement Award are, on average 2.71 times more likely to experience one or more complications in the hospital than if they were treated at hospitals that did receive the award.*

“Hospitals that have achieved the Healthgrades America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Joint Replacement have proven their dedication to quality care and exceptional outcomes,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer at Healthgrades. “Consumers should consider hospital quality when navigating their care journeys, and this recognition distinguishes Optim Medical Center-Tattnall in the marketplace.”

“Optim’s orthopedic surgery program, which includes our Joint Venture program, is one of the most highly recognized in our area. To be nationally recognized by Healthgrades among America’s 100 Best for Joint Replacement surgeries confirms Optim’s continued commitment toward creating a culture of excellence,” commented Optim Medical Center-Tattnall’s CEO, Rob Snipes. “Patient care is at the forefront of everything we do and we are extremely proud of our orthopedics program, our physicians, and our team for receiving this recognition.”

Optim Medical Center-Tattnall was also recognized for the following clinical achievements:


  *   Five-Star Recipient for Total Knee Replacement for 8 Years in a Row (2012-2019)
  *   Five-Star Recipient for Total Hip Replacement for 6 Years in a Row (2014-2019)
  *   Five-Star Recipient for Spinal Fusion Surgery for 4 Years in a Row (2016-2019)

“Consumers use reports like Healthgrades to evaluate their choice for care. With Optim Medical Center-Tattnall being recognized in the top 5% nationwide for orthopedic joint replacement outcomes, our patients are fortunate to easily access this top-tier level of care right in their own backyard.” David Perry, CEO of Optim Health System explained.  “Our surgeons and staff work incredibly hard to continually bring this unmatched level of care to our region, which is evidenced by Healthgrades awarding Optim this national designation year after year.”

For its analysis, Healthgrades evaluated approximately 45 million Medicare inpatient records for almost 4,500 short-term acute care hospitals nationwide to assess hospital performance in 32 common conditions and procedures using all-payer data*. Healthgrades recognizes a hospital’s quality achievements for cohort-specific performance, specialty area performance, and overall clinical quality. Individual procedure or condition cohorts are designated as 5-star (statistically significantly better than expected), 3-star (not statistically different from expected) and 1-star (statistically significantly worse than expected) categories. The complete Healthgrades 2019 Report to the Nation and detailed study methodology can be found at www.healthgrades.com/quality/.

† Region is defined by the following counties: Chatham, Tattnall, Liberty, Glynn, Bibb, Effingham, Toombs, Bulloch, Laurens in Georgia, and Beaufort, SC.
*All-payer data provided by 15 states and the District of Columbia. Statistics are based on Healthgrades analysis of MedPAR data for years 2015 through 2017 and represent three-year estimates for Medicare patients only.
